7:13 am
>> good morning. >> the "new york times" notes the clear divide within the republican party saying, i'm quoting here, if ever there was proof the tea party and republican party do not necessarily go in hand, it is christine o'donnell's victory over the establishment. it goes on to say you could be a model how the two might coexist. how important is it to you this gap be bridged? >> it's important because the tea party represents a broad cross section of the american people. actually, it's small part of an american awaning of people concerned about the debt, the spending, massive growth of government and the teovers. really, what we're doing here in washington has united america. when i go to a tea party, 40% of the people there are independence and demoats. what i'm trying to do is help the republicans here in washington understand that the tea parties don't want to be republicans, we as republicans need to embrace the ideas of
7:14 am
balancing the budget, of trying to return some fiscal sanity here to washington. i'm not as concerned about what christine o'donnell said 14 years ago as i am that she's going to help us balance our budget here in washington. >> but, senator, if you're trying to help your party, it would argue that you're really hurting the party, that these kinds of candidates cannot win general elections. >> the important thing to me first is to save our country. it's really tt critical. these trivia politicalabels do not mean as much right now when we're fighting for the survival versus the bankruptcy of our country. i think the american people in delaware all over the country want to see that sense of urgency from the people who represent them in washingt. they're not concerned whether the republicans get the majority or not, they want people in washington who understand that bancing the checkbook is not an extreme ea.
7:15 am
>> but practically speaking, do you believes the candidates can win in november? >> meredith, they told me, marko rubio couldn't win. and he is blowing it away in florida because he's telling people the truth. they said the same thing about pat toomey in pennsylvania and rand paul in kentucky. they're well ahead in the polls because people want a change in washington. you reall can't change washington unless you change the people who are here. i think that's what you saw in delaware, people are looking at what these candidates are going to do whenhey get to washington, and they're ready to throw out the bums and bring in new folks. i think we're going to do that in november. >> are you ready, if these candidates were to be elected, or if the republicans were to come into power or take over congss, obviously, control of congress, are you ready to take on a leadership role to challenge the current republican leadership? >> i like our current leadership. mitch is doing a great job and
7:16 am
so is john cornyn, with our senate committee. i've got the leadership role i want. i am head o the conservative steering committee within the senate. i'm managing the senate conservative fund, which by the way is if folks want to help these candidates. i want to support this leadership team. what we're trying to do now is get a group of republicans that provide a clear contrast with the pelosi-obama agenda, which is masve debt and government growth. >> before i let you go, vy very quickly, you're up for reelection this november and your democratic opponent, alvin greene, s said repeatedly, he would want to debe you. is that going to happen? will you debate him? >> we have no debate scheduled. i have a couple of opponents in south carolina. meredi meredith, my main opponent are at the white house and that's where i'm spending most of my time. >> that's a no. thank you very much.

7:32 am
and calmly told the bank teller her ente family was being held hostage at home. she needed the money for ransom. at 9:21 a.m., with jennifer still in the bank, the manager made a chilling call to 911. >> we have a lady, who is in our bank right now, who says that her husband and children are being held at their house, that the police are told they will kill the children and the husband. she says they are being very nice, they have their faces covered. she is petrified. reporter: with two reason, these two men, steven hayes and joshua come come were terrorizing the family, beating dr. petit with a baseball bat and tying him to this pole in the basement. his two daughters were tied to their beds upstairs, all tortured overnight until the sun came up and the bank opened up. >> they're tied up, she said. she's taking $15,000 out of her
7:33 am
credit line. they told her the wouldn't hurt anybody if she got back there with the money. she believes them. i think she's walking out now. >> reporter: officers were dispatched to the house but according to police logs, were told by their captain not to approach the house and stay back until they could set up a safe perimeter. 30 minutes after that first 911 call, still no ambulances, no fire trucks, no emergency teams who could move in. by now, jennifer was back home with the ney, her family and the attackers. >> this was a small police department. it very quickly got over their heads. they fell back on their training, but in this particular situation, their training wasn't adequate and in the time it took, lives were lost. >> reporter: william petit could ar his family being tortured upstairs.moaning and the thumbs he testifie somehow bleeding from his head, he managed to escape, his feet still bound, he hopped out of a
7:34 am
house and made it to a neighbor's house for help. 9:55 a.m., that neighbor called 911. >> i have bill petit here, who's hurt, my neighbor. >> he's at your house? >> yes. he's right here. >> reporter: minutes later, a fireball, the suspect raped and strangle jennifer petit and burned the house down. the mother and her two daughters were all killed. >> this is probably one of the worst situations of its kind that i've ever seen. >> reporter: in court wednesday, it got ugly. steven hayes defense lawyer, who by the way, admits his client committed the crime, pointed his finger at police, not excusing what happened. the fact was, you were too late, correct? the captain replied, if we had any indication of violence, i would have been the first one through the door. >> ion it's a particular
7:35 am
effective line of cross-examination, if u had done your job, could you have saved my victim from your client. >> reporter: he is now in court where he shows up everyday. >> it got so emotional wednesday, the photo evidence so gruesome, the petit faly, including william petit broke down in tears. the judge had to send everyone home early because the jury was sobbing. >> thank you so much. dan abrams, nbc's chief legal analyst, good morning to you. obviously talking about the responsibility the police may bear in all of this. it took them 30 minutes to set up that permaneimeter around th petit home. in that time, t petit family was being rdered. >> no question in retrospect, the police could have and should have done more. they should have gone right to the house. the question is exactly what d they think and know at the time. i think clint is right, they
7:36 am
used their training, they followed their protocol. but the bottom line is that this was more than just someone being held for raom. my guess is that most of the time, in commuties like this, when someone's held for ransom or kidnapped, it's domestic violence, et cetera. >> not used to this kind of violent crime. >> exactly. theyould say, we had no idea. that doesn't excuse it. doesn't mean i'm sure the police are feeling very guilty for everything that happened. >> is it a wake-up call, do you think, for these communities, that the need to re-evaluate police procedure? >> maybe. let's be honest, this doesn't happen all that often. that doesn't excuse it. doesn't mean it's time for evaluation how they do things. this can't happen. they can't have another situation. you hear that bank teller. when you listen to that call, there's no ambiguity in that teller's voice. that teller isn't saying, well, i'm t sure, maybe, it could be. that is aeller saying definitively, there is a woman who is here in the bank, who is
7:37 am
petrified. she uses the word "petrified." wh you hear that kind of language, do you think to yourself, the police ought to have gone right to the home. >> could the police department face any serious consequences of the police involved in this? >> there could be civil lawsuits. i don't think that's like lin the context of this case. there could have been departmental action. it doesn't seem that's going to happen either in this case. it is interesting, isn't it, to see the defense attorys using this as a sword, right? the notion that the defense attorneys are now saying, aha, so you police officers might have been able to save your own client -- my client -- save the victims from my client. it's sort of in sanity. >> what does that say to you? >> it says these defense attorneys and this defense attorney knows he's got almost no defense here in the guilt phase of the case. two phases, first phase is guilt, second phase is the penalty case where the determine if he gets the death penalty.
7:38 am
in this phase, they're basically trying to go through the procures, hoping that the jurors will feel some level of sympathy and then in the penalty phase making an effort to save his life. i think these defense attorneys know he is almost certainly going to be found guilty. >> william petit who lost his family says he wants the death penalty. how strong do you think his stan will affect what happens here? >> the fact he's been so adamant about pursuing the death penalty, very controversial in connecticut, almost abolished it, almost never use it. the fact that dr. petit has come forward and said so strongly that he thinks the death penalty should apply, almost certainly has led these prosecutors not to cut a deal here, meaning not to say, as the defense attorneys wanted, life in prison, will ead guilty, prosecutor saying no. we're taking this to trial. this is such a horrible heinous crime, we want to pursue a death penalty. >> d abrams, thank you so much. appreciate it. let's get a check

movie about the 2008 crash but do a movie about real people living through this story of betrayal and greed and trust and love. so it was a story about six actors in the movie. they really have a -- it's a family drama. >> one of the thing you said to me, when you premiered the movie in kcaan and you looked at the lack of change, you were surprised how much wealth was still being amassed, opposed to individuals, it was the banks amassing that wealth and how much greed still existed. >> greco was replaced by the banks and hedge fds and banks. the greed is amazing, $100 million to own a business and get a business in those days is now a billion. a big hedge fund starts with a biion. we're talkingig money now, bigger than i ever dreamed. this whole movie is about this new era and it never really went away. what happens with the collapse is we have anotherwist in the
8:40 am
movie, where all these people's lives are somewhat shattered. >> there's another word, opposed greed, you want people to consider another word here, another emotion, that is envy. the power of envy, what it can do to people. >> envy played a role -- if you have a few million dollar and your neighbor has another 10 million dollars than you do, it seems me envy is the drives force of what people did. they always want more and that's what joshrolin does in the movie. he plays the fountain of all evil. he plays the banker that represents this type of person. >> i have to be honest. i don'know there are a lot of good people in the movie. everybody maybe has a tinge of good but a lot of bad in them? >> i think there is an idealistic young couple. >> but fall in the movie as well. >> well, i don't want to give it
8:41 am
away, but he betrays his girlfriend for self accumulation, let's say. she does, too, she doe things -- in other words, money makes you do thing you don't want to do. >> slightly off the subject, when the movie premiered and saw it athat time, from what i understand, the movie people will see in the theater on friday is a little bit different. >> yes. >> how often do you do that? do you second-guess yourself a lot on the way you edited things or based on public response? >> when we saw you at caan, we had only been in theed didding room 3 1/2 months, we finished the whole movie. for us, it was a chance to platform, see it with a big audience, get a big reception. the ending was a little too abrupt for me and i wanted to make it more realistic. >> let me end on a personal note, the star o this movie, michael douglas is going through tough times. you spoke to him recently. >> he was at the press conference, out helping the
8:42 am
movie. painful, no kidding around, serious. we are all hoping for him. >> w are keeping our fingers crosse as well. oliver stone, "wall street, money never sleeps." it opens in theaters september 24th. up next, our friend, jane pauley, shares the story of a remarkable woman who decided to reinvent herself mid-life.

8:45 am
zimmerman has seen the world through the eyes of a camera. when she focused on her own future, retirement wasn't in t picture. katherine zimmerman was a trailblazer. 35 years ago, she was one of tv first female news photographers. >> when i went down for the interview and the guy wanted to know how i could carry this big heavy camera around, i assured him a girl from the farm could do anything. >> anything but retire. >> i didn't have any money in the bank. i was gng to probably work for the rest of my life. >> reporter: you had a career that was maybe not sustainable? >> that went through my mind. i thought, i better find something else i can do for the next 30 years. >> reporter: it was natural she'd think about gardening. she grew up on a farm outside dayton. we set up our cameras and lights in the barn she played in as a chil why did you knowou had to go back to school?
8:46 am
>> i just didn't think i could go out and offer my services to design somebody's landscape by just saying, hey, i like doing this. i really felt like i needed to have some expertise, as i did with film making. reporter: sohe enrolled in a graduate program in horticulture and landscape design at the u.s. department of agriculture. >> nights and weekends, it took me three years. i didn't have really the luxury ofust stopping. each class was like 100 plants to know. you got kids, you got to earn your paycheck. >> reporter: but finally, she was designing landscape. when she looked around at her own yard. >> i was the queen of the wn. i always thought i was so darned good at gardening. and then i learned how darned bad i was. >> reporter: she looked for fireflies. but they were gone. >> i made the connection that that was me, i did that. i killed the fireflies because i put down pesticides. it changed theirection i was taking with my landscape career.
8:47 am
>> reporter: today, katherine zimmerman is not a gardener, she's a sustainable landscaper, a meadow maker. >> meadow is one of the prettiest words. a lot is going on in a meadow. it gives us back. a lot is going on in a meadow. it gives u back the insects and bees, cool things i remember when i was on the farm. >> reporter: last year, she photographed prairies and meadows all or the united states. suddenly, kathryn realized she had a book. it's auld urban and suburban meadows. >> it's been a big learning experience. this is a tough year because i self published the book. that meant a lot of money up front, 20 some thousand dollars. >> reporter: add the distribution and marketing costs. >> i wondered how am going to make the mortgage?
8:48 am
>> reporter: what if youose the house? >> yeah, i've been thinking about that lately. it's just a house. maybe it's time to downsize. >> reporter: so katherine zimmerman's reinvention is a work in progress. at 57, she's leading a double life, freelance film-maker and professional meadow maker. >> fresh meadow comes up every year. >> reporter: they say gardeners are people who believe in the future. tell me what you see when you see your future. >> it's not scary to me. i think it's because iraw somethg from somewhere, maybe from the past. a strength. maybe from the soil. >> the meadow movement does seem to be catching on but the reality check is for all her work, travel, schooling and vestment, she is yet to see the big paycheck, as kathryn puts it. but she's taken the long view, the payoff will come over the next 20 or 30 years.
8:49 am
by the way, i'll be talking more about this during my live web chat todayt noon eastern time. you can find it at meredith. >> kathryn started working on the second act ten years in advance, which isn't often the way things happen. >> at 50, she started planning and often doesn't happen you go back to school and work double time lik that. she has a unique example to inspire us. >> how did you find her? >> it's funny. on a shoot. we were in the backyard doing one of those walking around shots. she was in the back and she looked at the landscapi -- >> she saw the crew? >> she saw the crew. this woman has some expertise and that's when i realized she did have this other newly acquired expertise in sustainable gardening. >> really interesting story, a nice lady. jane pauley. thank you so much. up next, the truth about what men are rlly thinking. first, this is "today" on nbc.

connecticut, the 911 tapes are raising questions whether police could have done more to save the victims. jeff has more on this. good morning. >> hi. good morning to you. the tapes tell the story. new questions why police didn't rush in to save the petit family. officers were on scene, but stayed outside. meanwhile, the petits were being tortured and later killed inside. >> reporter: in this newly released surveillance video, a clear picture, the final picture of jennifer hawke-petit, less than an hour before her death. prosecutors say petit was at a local bank withdrawing $15,000 and calmly told the bank teller her entire family was bng held hostage at home. she needed the money for ransom. at 9:21 a.m., with jennifer still in the bank, the manager ma a chilling call to 911. >> we have a lady who is in our bank right now, who says that her husband a children are being held at their house.
9:04 am
if the police are told, they will kill the children and the husband. she says they are being very nice. they have their faces covered. she is petrified. >> reporter: with good reason. prosecutors say these two men, steven hayes and joshua komisarjevsky were terrorizing the family, beating dr. petit with a baseball bat and tying him to this pole in the basement. his two daubters were tied to their beds upstairs, all tortured overnight until the sun came up and the bank opened up. >> they're tied up, she said. she's taking $15,000 out of her credit line. they told her they wouldn't hurt anybody if she got back there with the money. she believes them. i think she's walking out now. >> reporter: officers wer dispatched to the house but according to police logs were told by their captains not to approach the house and stay back until they could set up a safe perimeter. 30 minutes after that first 911 call, still no ambulances, or
9:05 am
fire trucks or emergency teams who could move in. by now, jennifer was back home with the money, her family and e attackers. >> this was a small police department, they very quickly got over their heads. they fell back on the training, but in this particular situation, the training wasn't adequate. in the time it took, lives were lo. >> reporter: william petit could hear his famil being tortured upstairs. i heard the moaning and the thumbs, he testified. somehow, bleeding from his head, he managed to escape, his feet still bound, petit hopped out of the house and made it to a neighbor's home for help. minutes late a fireball, prosecutors say the suspects raped and strangled jennifer petit and burned the house down. the mother and her two daughters were all killed. in court wednesday, it got ugly, steven hayes defense lawyer, who by the way admits his client committed thecrime, poied the finger at police, snapping at a

9:09 am
break through perhaps in science history and for sure our lifetime. we have saved millions of lives in this country and around the globe. immunizations matter. the idea you could give a shot to prevent a disease that could kill you is extraoinary. >> even though many of these diseases we're talking about are rare. >> they're rare because this has worked so well. look at this laundry list of diseases we can prevent. we don't talk about polio. smallpox has been eradicated, don't immize for it anymore. these are preventable diseases a simple shot can take ce of. part of the controversy around people pushing back, say, they're rare, why should diet? they' -- do it? they're rare because this has worked. if we don immunize, the herd of human beings will have their deserves dropped and that can make us vulnerable. >> this topic touched a nerve. when we put it out online, we asked our viewers, questions
9:10 am
about it. we got a response, anonymous e-mail. babies seem to get a lot of shots in their first month of life, often multiple sts in one visit. is it okay forabies to have so many shots at once? >>he answer is yes. let me take you back to utero, to when they get their first shot. they are swimming around in amniotic fluid in the mommy's tummy and it is sterile. from the moment they pop out into the world, that child is colonized with trillions of bacteriand viruss that says to the immune system, wake up, you're here, which means start making anti-bodies to the bad stuff out there. now to the first shot, two months later, there are a multitude of shots and more than ever because we now can prevent diseases. when a mom or a dad looks at th vial and that little shot, remember, the amount of medicine is just a small traction.
9:11 am
the rest is water or saltwater, the delivery mechanism to get the rest of the medicine in the body. it sounds like a lot. compared to what a baby is fighting off with toys on the floor and things put in t mouth and bacteria all around, it is minuscule. >> some people would like to have them spread over longer periods of time or started a little bit late. what do you think about it? >> i don't like it and here's why. i don't care if you're an md or phd or think you're smarterhan everybody on earth. here's the downside. it's harder to kype traeep tracf stuff, easy to let the next shot fall through the system. the doctors who set this up know this is when these children are most vulnerable to these illnesses an when they can make ant anti-bodies. there is no scientific proof spacing them out is better, but more likely to miss a dose.
9:12 am
>> darsy is joining us live from skype. what's your question. >> hi. i just found out the vaccine is available for girls and boys. i wanted to know if this is true and if boys should get the vaccine. >> it is cool. the hpv vaccine is to keep women frometting the human papilloma virus, linked to cancer, and certain strains worst tha others. we now know this is a vaccine given to women in their preteens, 9 to early 20s. the idea is get the vaccine before y're sexually active and exposed to the viruss. it makes sense if a boy carries the virus and girl gets the virus, whyre you just immunizing the girl? now we know it's safe to give both girls and boys. >> does the boy benefit? >> they do. you can get wart you can get sexually tramitted warts from the human papilloma virus.
9:13 am
>> it became controversial? >> it was seen as, then my child will be promiscuous. make no doubt about it, this is not a vaccine you give your child to say, now, it's okayo have sex. you give it to your child so when they are sexually active, you don't die because you had sexual activity, 9 to early 20s. once you had multiple sexual partners or late 20s to 30s, this is not an appropriate vaccine. >> we have another question from nicole from alabama, and she's on the phone. hello, nicole. what's your question? >> calle [ inaudible ]. >> think we might have lost nicole's signal. we'll try to get her back on line. we have samantha in illinois. she's on the phone. let's see if we can talk to samantha. hey, samantha. >> caller: hi. >> what's your question? >> caller: good morning. my question is, i'm a 19-year-old teenager that works a full timeob and goes to college. what shot do i need for this
9:14 am
upcoming year? >> i love this question, samantha. first of all, congratulations ongoing to college. remember, it's like going into the army, you are going into the barracks. you are going to be nea people who come right up to your face and transmit things. a couple things. now is the time to get your flu shot. i am a big pro-opponeponent get meningitis vaccine. get those two things. if you haven't had your hpv shot, get it and check your tetanus record. >> meningitis is rare but devastating if you get it >> it is rare but for the cost of a price of tennis shoes, your child can save a limb or his or her life. you're right. it is not as common as the other ones. i have seen the devastation on the back end. meningococcal meningitis is a preventable disease. >> coming up how to save your home to get it sold fast.
